different Guiness brews


Recommended Posts

On a recent trip to Ireland, I saw they Guiness has a brewmasters series availiable. Different recipes of Guiness offered alongside the traditional (or most recent). The current offering was the Tucan Brew. Much creamier with less of the coffee/chocolate bitterness and a touch more sweetness. Anyone seen these in the States?

The Toucan brew is the 2nd of a series of 6, I believe. To be honest, I'm not really a fan, I preferred the "Brew 39" that started the campaign. Nothing compares to the real thing, though!

I was in Ireland 2 weeks ago and i ordered a pint of the Toucan Brew. I thought it was a so-so beer. It definatly lacked the bitterness that i was looking for in the beer. The bartender told me that he thought it was considered a lighter version of Guinness when i ordered it

I was pretty happy however when i walked out of the pub. The bartender gave me a pint glass of the brewmasters series glasses to take home with me.

      Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness.
       

       
       
       
      Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name.
       
      My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair).
       
      It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
